Kate’s works have recently been inspired by a trip to Tonga, swimming with humpback whales. This current series of works is entitled ‘Plankton’.
In these works, she seeks to make the minuscule, visible. By shining a light on the aesthetic beauty in the unseen life forms that underpin our existence, she hopes to reinforce our interconnectedness and reliance on the microscopic as well as grand creatures in our world. Rotifers are an important part of the freshwater zooplankton, being a major foodsource and with many species also contributing to the decomposition of soil organic matter. The complex variations to their forms is explored in these works.
